sheltaPod - the campervan and vehicle awning that adapts to changing weather
2 in 1 shelter for your vehicle
sheltaPod is unique because it can offer campers the option of a simple sun canopy and/or a half dome tent. The fabric in each section can roll up and attach to the pole sleeve using several buckles and hooks. This concertina effect can be done in stages so the user can decide on how much cover they want. Each stage uses two pre-attached guy lines to keep the tent rigid and in place.
When it's time for bed
The inner tent with integrated bath-tub style groundsheet (included) can be clipped into the rainfly to provide a dry and cozy space for hanging out or sleeping. It has two mesh window panels with curtains, one on top for a view of the stars and the other at the back. This can provide better ventilation in hot climates. It also gives campers a view out when the rainfly is rolled up - perfect place to sit if there are lots of insects around.
The inner tent also has two doors, one mesh and the other fabric. Both have central zips and tiebacks.
The two tone Front Door Panel is designed to protect your stored equipment from both prying eyes and the weather when you don't want to use the inner tent. We also provide a separate groundsheet.

No campervan? No Worries!
sheltaPod can attach to almost any vehicle. The simple canopy design has five attachment methods. For campervan's with multi rails or a gutter there is the C channel beading strip or the pole sleeve method.
For SUV's, Jeeps and standard van's, we offer three velcro straps which can attach to roof bars or racks. We also include four webbing straps for 'over the top' attachment (with front and rear to stop slippage). And finally there are three gaps in the pole sleeve for attaching suction clamps.
Please note that we DO NOT INCLUDE the attachment equipment, for example the pole for the pole sleeve, 'figure of eight' for C channel and suction clamps. For more attachment information please click here
There are five different attachment methods. If your van has an awning rail fitted then you can use the C channel or J/gutter rail. For C channel you may also need a Kador strip* and figure of eight* for driveway. For J/gutter you will need a pole* to insert into the pole sleeve and three butterfly clips* to secure this in place. If you don’t have an awning rail then you can use the ‘over the top’ method. Four webbing straps are included in the sheltaPod bag. Two straps are thrown over the roof of your van/car and pegged into the ground on the other side. The another two straps secure the sun canopy front and rear to stop any sideways movement. Finally there are velcro straps that can attach to roof bars or rail and suction clamps* can attach to the pole (inserted into the pole sleeve) and then attached onto the roof.
If you are attaching to a roll out awning then please check the diameter of the C channel. sheltaPod uses 6mm beading. If your C channel is 4mm then you will need to separately purchase a 4mm to 6mm Kador conversion strip.
*Please note we do not sell the attachment equipment but they can be easily found online or at any good camping store.
